« Part 11: Thanks Part 12 of Day to day life series Part 13: Wow where did my shop go »

Busy! Busy! Busy! This is truly the only way to describe what’s going on right now in my life. I had a few odds and ends jobs to complete outside this week before I start building the shed underneath of my son’s tree house next week. Some of them I’m sure that I could have done multiple tasks in one day but, hell! Why kill myself? I cat proofed the back yard so that our three legged feline could go outside. That did take a whole day to complete and now he is giving hell to all of the animals that used to have free rain over the back yard. I had a couple of pipes, one from the sump pump and the other from the down spout that emptied into the back yard in a place that was very convenient for me so I had to reroute those. And yesterday my dad stopped by and we took the two old 6’ gates down, because the hinges were bent and the boards wrapped, cut them off at 42” fixed the hinges and rehung them. Short two and a half hour job.
Back into the shop today! My oldest who has lived with my parents for the last four years is moving to Columbus this weekend. He is 23 and this will be the first that he has lived on his own. Needless to say there are a lot of things that he doesn’t have to furnish an apartment. One of those things is a entertainment center. So as a house warming gift I am going to build one today. Yes, today! Recently Wood Magazine had an article on building cupboards out of prefabbed kitchen cupboards and I am going to use that idea to build him one that he can put his TV on and hide his DVD collection. I picked up everything yesterday for the build and I have $110 in all of it. Not to bad for a one day build or for an entertainment center.
Pictures to follow of my version. Cheers.

It would appear you keep yourself busy and help out others to boot, so well done for you.

I really envy you all the “free” time you have to be in the shop and potter around in your garden. I retire in 4 years, not that I am wishing my life away but I can’t wait to have a little more time to myself.

I hope the entertainment centre works out well, good luck with it.
